    "Rough Crossings" is the astonishing story of the struggle to freedom by thousands of African-American slaves who fled the plantations to fight behind British lines in the American War of Independence.

Their fate became entwined with British abolitionists: ... Show more

Disappointed

by Cheryl on Apr 14, 2012

Ordered this book after hearing many good reviews. The book itself was in excellent condition and soon I knew why.

Far to fragmented to my taste.
